Haemochromatosis PCR

Haemochromatosis PCR ViennaLabFor diagnosis of Haemochromatosis, a Haemochromatosis PCR with StripAssay® for the detection of mutations in the HFE gene is available.

  • Most forms of haemochromatosis are caused by mutations in the HFE gene; less common forms carry mutations in the TFR2 or FPN1 gene.
  • Haemochromatosis can lead to liver cirrhosis, liver cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and cardiopathies.
  • If treatment is started before organs are damaged, these associated conditions can be prevented.
  • Premature death or organ failure may occur if the condition is left untreated.
  • Therapeutic bleeding is a simple, safe and effective treatment.
  • Thus, early diagnosis allows a virtually normal life for affected individuals

The ViennaLab Haemochromatosis StripAssays®
• are based on reverse-hybridization of biotinylated PCR products
• combine probes for mutations and controls in a parallel array of allele-specific oligonucleotides
• work with immobilized oligos on a teststrip
• show mutations by enzymatic color reaction easily visible to the naked eye


Haemochromatosis StripAssay A4-22020 TestsDetection of 18 mutations: twelve HFE mutations, four TFR2 mutations and two FPN1 mutations
Haemochromatosis StripAssay B4-21020 TestsDetection of 3 HFE gene mutations: C282Y, H63D and S65C
